Our Story

1957

Who is William Wood?

William Wood was the name of our Founder’s Late Grandfather. He served in the British Fire Service for 25 years winning commendations for his acts of bravery. He was stationed at Pilgrim Street for the Newcastle & Gateshead Fire Brigade serving on the Blue Watch.

 

1982

Grandfather & Hero

William retired from the Fire Service in 1982 leaving a lasting impression on his colleagues and his grandson Jonny. His impact and legacy now lives on within our unique watches.

 

2017

The Match Was Lit

In 2017 our CEO Jonny Garrett founded William Wood Watches. His vision was to create beautifully crafted British design watches made from upcycled firefighting materials in dedication to his grandfather, firefighters and first responders internationally.

Fire Hose Straps

All of our straps are made from genuine upcycled fire hose used by Fire Departments around the world. We offer a diverse range of colours, each with their own texture, patina and story to tell.

100 YEARS OF HISTORY INSIDE

Vintage Firefighter Helmet

Our watches have over 100 years of firefighting history inside. We take an original British brass firefighter's helmet, worn by firefighters in the 1920's in Great Britain, and melt it inside of our watch creations.

UPCYCLED

Firefighter Turnout Gear

Firefighter turnout gear, worn by firefighters to protect them against the elements, is one of the most iconic first responder uniforms. We have managed to upcycle this incredible material into our luxury watch straps.

Very good craftsmanship. Watches are gorgeous well made and great quality.

Recently acquired a Jubilee Special edition in bronze. Amazing and beautiful contrast of colors. The other valuable thing is that the Company's President is always on hand and answers you directly in warp speed.

Way to go!

Have just brought my second William Wood watch this time a fearless version. They are exceptional watch company. They even Come with a leather travel case. I am sure they will have another to tempt me in 2024

Brilliant service and quality!
I recently received a William Wood watch as a birthday gift and it really is a beautifully crafted time piece. The ease of which you can interchange the straps is a great feature and can make any of their watches change from contemporary or classic in style within seconds. The communications were brilliant with regular updates and it really is a very special gift.

Martin, MA

One very impressed customer
This company have been a pleasure to deal with at all stages. They make a great quality watch if mine is representative Of all their range. They communicate well at all stages of the transaction. On arrival, my watch is so beautifully packed and presented. Other companies could learn a lot about making the customer feel valued and presenting their products. I am one very impressed customer and would highly recommend them.

Scott delf, GB

Never felt more valued as a customer!
Personal email conversations from the Owner really made me feel appreciated. Hassle free transaction and all queries answered.

Love my new watch, only issue is the logo on the back plate is not in correct position....very minor issue but attention to detail missing based on what is advertised. Otherwise a perfect watch from an astounding company who I will be buying from again in the future!

Bradley Smith, GB

Received a Watch as an early Christmas present recently and have to say I'm very impressed! The level of detail and thought behind each watch is clear to see and the quality is equally as impressive. Customer service experience is also second to none with lots of consideration and focus on the customer. Will be looking to purchase from them again in the future.
